What kinds of organic, vegetarian and allergy-friendly foods are available, such as organic produce, gluten-free products, meat substitutes for vegetarians, etc?

Much of the produce at the bazaar is organic. Most of the meat sold in Georgia is cut oddly and includes pieces of tendon, etc, so I tend to only eat meat at restaurants rather than attempting to struggle to cook it myself. Goodwill has Western-style meat, though it's a bit pricey. Many Georgians fast for religious regions, so vegetarians don't have too much difficulty, and many Georgian specialties are vegetarian. - Oct 31, 2011
Excellent vegetables and fruits. Have not seen such good anywhere. Pork and chicken meat is excellent too. Seafood is very expensive and not fresh. Beef and veal is not good. - Apr 27, 2011
